    |1.  Introduction|
    ##################
    
        This is my first Save State hacking document.  In order to use this
    document you need:
    a.  Zsnes emulator
    b.  Final Fantasy 3 rom  (The one I used FF6us.FIG so it should work on
                              all FF3 roms and if it does not e-mail me and
                              tell me where you got your rom and I will try
                              to correct this document for other versions)
    c.  A save state with the characters that you want to alter in it.
    d.  A hex editor.  I am using HexWorkShop. You can get it if you want
        at www.bpsoft.com.
    e.  Some knowledge of the hex number system for I will not teach it in
        this document.
    
        Now on to the hacking.

    |2.  Version|
    #############
    
    Version 1.0
      - Character offsets up to Sabin
      - Gold offset
      - Item offsets and Item Digits
      - Magic offsets for Characters up to Sabin
    
    Version 1.1
      - Changed E-mail address in title area for it had an extra _ in it
      - Added Banons Character offsets Banon does not have magic so he
        has not offsets for it
      - Added # of steps
    
    Version 1.2 FINAL
      - Added Character offsets up to Gau.
      - Added magic offsets up to Gau.
      - Since I released the first version of this guide, two programs that     do
    the same and are easier then hexing a docment have been relased     on this
    same game.  You can get one at www.zophar.net the other at
        http://che.darkmazda.com/
      - If they used any of my info then I am glad that people have seen
        something that I have done in my spare time and if they didn't then
        I am still glad at how many people have e-mailed me with responsed
        to this guide.  Untill I get more time and a computer that is not
        the familys and is just mine I will not make anymore FAQ's so until
        then (probably later this year or this summer) look for more from
        DracoStar
    
    Version 1.3 The Very FINAL ONE
      - Changed some spelling mistakes
      - Added another site to the credits
    
    Version 1.3.1  OK This is the Very Very FINAL ONE
      - Many people have e-mailed me asking about basic hex editing.  I
        have gotten permission to put a link to The Vale created by Jair,
        Griffin Knodle.  At this site he has various tutorials in his Docs
        & Tutorials section.
      - The link is http://www.resnet.trinity.edu/gknodle
      - I hope this helps all of you out

    |3.  Gold Offsets|
    ##################
    
         I dont know what the max for the gold is in this game but if you
    want alot of money then use 9,999,999. <==With that much money you
    should not run out.
    
    2473  gold
    
    In that offset if you want to have 9,999,999 gold then put 7f9698 in
    the offset above.
    
    #####
    |3.1|
    #####
    
      This is how many steps you have taken in the game.  I was told that
    the number of steps you take affects how much damage Strago does with
    his mind lores.  To edit this just start at offset 2479 and try the
    same hex numbers as for the gold.
    
    2479  steps taken
    
    
    #################
    |4.  Stat digits|
    #################
    
        For the stats of the characters you will need a couple hex bytes to
    make it easier.
      FF = 255 For stats                 C8 = 200 For speed
      63 = 99 For level and # of items   E703 = 999 For magic points
      0F27 = 9999 For Hit Points
    
    The reason that I suggust using 200 for speed rather than 255 is that
    if it is on 255 you will see no difference in speed but with 200 you do
    see a difference in speed.
    
    #######################
    |5.  Character Offsets|
    #######################
    
        These are the offsets for the characters.  I have only included the
    first offset for each thing.  Current hp takes up 2 bytes so in hex it
    would look like 0F27.  So if you start out at the first offset (which I
    have listed for you) and just type in the amount you want then you
    should be fine.  Any questions or problems E-mail me at
    DracoStar@ignmail.com.

    |Secondary Characters|

    These are characters that you only have for one part of the game.
    Banon and wedge have the same offsets so later in the game you will
    have to edit them again when you get Banon.

    |6.  Item digits|
    #################
    
         The items in this game are listed in a weird way.  First you have
    the items hex number.  Then in a totaly different area you have how the
    ammount of that item.  Confused?  I was when I was looking for it.
    
    Ex.  you want a dirk 00 as your first item.
    you would put 00 at offset 247c then 01(for one dirk) in offset 257c.
    Get it now?
    
    247c  first item
    a57a  last item

        Ah spells.  Before this document you had to go through and earn
    Magic points but now if you put FF in each offset below then you will
